My Summer Must Haves

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9


We are almost to the weekend!

This work week was especially rough on me and I am in serious need of the weekend. And some champagne. Lots of champagne.

Speaking of being in serious need of the weekend, Summer is right around the corner and I’m counting down the days. It is hands down my favorite season of the year! I feel like I thrive in the Summer with the hot sun, cold pools, weekend BBQs, and MY BIRTHDAY!

I am itching for Summer to be here which is why I’ve rounded up a few items I would consider must haves this Summer. I’m currently eyeing these lemon slip ons, these gingham shorts, and tassel earrings.

I just bought these sunnies the other day in rose gold and can’t wait for them to arrive! They’re only $12 and their direct link is below.

I hope all of you have a FAB weekend!



Maroon Tank Top

 Happy Monday!
I feel so refreshed after this weekend. Kelly and I hung low on Friday night first the first time in a long time and I needed it. We woke up early on Saturday morning and then headed out for errands. I thought I was going to apply for my passport just to find out you need an appointment to do so. Whoops!
After that fail, we just went out for a bite to eat and came home. The weather radar kept teasing us with a chance for showers and they never came. Boo. But we enjoyed the rest of our day as bumps on a log and caught up on Netflix.
On Sunday morning we woke up and it was like 60* outside! It felt incredible so we opened all of the windows and let fresh air flow through the house. We cleaned up and then headed out for lunch outside somewhere to enjoy the beautiful weather. I’m feeling good and ready to tackle the week ahead.
I want to share with you the details of this outfit. Unfortunately Nordstrom already took my top off the site, but I have linked a few similar items of each article of clothing for you to shop below.

Navy Embroidered Top

I am so ready for warm weather I can taste it. Not that this Winter has been particularly rough, but I am a southern native and if it were up to me I would have it warm and sunny year-round. It’s about that time of year for the weather to get either really warm or really chilly and I’m living for the days that are really warm.

Give me a bit of sun and I don’t miss an opportunity to lose the sleeves and soak it up! That is why this top was particularly perfect for weekend errands and a bit of fun color. I spotted this really cool color wall in the Montrose area of Houston and I thought it was the perfect pop for this outfit!

This outfit is great because it was just right for a warmer Winter afternoon and will transition into Spring excellently. Now, I’m just hoping we have more warm days than cold days because I’m at my best in the warmer months. Here’s to hoping!


Going Gingham

Well, well, well. Hello again!

It has been a hot freaking minute since I’ve been on SML and it FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK! How in the heck have y’all been???

I’ve been great (because I know you care). Update is that Kelly and I got married. No big deal. LOL!

No worries though, I will give a full recap post on the wedding and all of it’s excitement soon. But, in the meantime I want to share with y’all an outfit that I am LOVING at the moment.









I wore this outfit for date night this weekend, but you could totally dress it down and wear it casually, too. I am obsessing over anything gingham and this top jumped in the cart with one pass. And it’s less than $25! Definitely a winner. I felt that it paired perfectly with my favorite black skinnies and these ADORABLE black fringe booties.

Bonus was that the skinny jeans have a bit of stretch so that this girl could enjoy her dinner and cocktails in peace.

The weekend has flown by and another work week has begun! Kelly and I enjoyed a great weekend together for our anniversary and I was definitely slow to get up this morning. Why can’t the weekend be longer??

But, we spent some time out and about yesterday morning and I had the perfect top for a casual morning of errands. It’s a really light material and a great option to stay cool in the Summer heat. I especially love the white trim detail on the edges for that extra but of flare. Unfortunately the top is sold out but I linked a very similar top above.

I threw on my favorite pair of white shorts and my white converse for our day of running around. I included my go-to jewelry and was off!
